Thank you, Martin,

I fixed the problem with pythonpath and figured out that there is a
problem with Apache and CGI, not with importing the library anymore.
There is something Apache doesn't like. I only get the two different
errors: Malformed header - or - premature end of file, no further
details. The python-scripts work fine on a linux server with Apache in
contrast to Apache on Mac OS X...

I'll keep working on it. It's just frustrating.

Hello Pythonistas,

I am trying to get certain (self-written) libraries imported into my
scripts using statements like

"from library import function.py".
Is this a typo you do not need the .py on the end
it should (perhaps) read:

from library import function

But they are not being found.

I think that the pythonpath-variable must be expanded to the location
to this libraries.

But, I can't find any usable information using Google on how to set up
the pythonpath properly.
I don't even know where to look for the pythonpath-variable?
The pythonpath (or PYTHONPATH) variable is an environment variable -
I'm no MAC expert but I expect there is a command you could use to show
it's value... however from inside a running python program the
PYTHONPATH variable is stored in sys.path and is a list of paths that
python will look in for your module / package.

Python 2.3 (#1, Aug 27 2003, 10:53:10)
[GCC 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
import sys
['', '/usr/local/lib/python23.zip', '/usr/local/lib/python2.3',

A quick google on PYTHONPATH should point you towards some useful
information... it is also explained in the (free, online) python
It would be great if anyone could help me out on this?
